Could I have PND?

(3 Posts)

I fear I may have PND. My daughter is nearly nine months old and I've been feeling this way since she was about a month old. I feel very, very edgy a lot of the time. I've put on two stone since she's been born out of nerves and I sometimes think I may harm her which is the the scariest thing ever. I'm a young mum and I just feel like I haven't bonded with my own daughter. I feel the worst parent in the world. I don't enjoy life any more. help. sad sad sad

Hi mydaughter.

If you DD is safe, warm & fed you aren't the worst parent in the world. It sounds like you need to speak to your GP they are better equipped to decide if it is PND.

Parenting is difficult & sometimes you just need a bit of help from people like GPs. I suggest phoning them first thing tomorrow and asking for an appointment right away.

Good luck & I hope you feel better soon so that you are more able to enjoy your time with DD.

I felt a duty to reply to this.

I had severe pnd after ds. The worst bit was the dark thoughts that seemed totally out of character. I eventually broke down at one of ds immunisation appointments.

I'd be happy to share my experience with you if you want my email. But the long short of it is i got help and got better. I've got an amazing relationship with ds now.

Please try not to think too long term for now, sew your gp and you will start the ball rolling on making a full recovery and bonding with your gorgeous little one x
